  1. It's difficult to reconcile the short odds on Tories being largest party, considering the polls between Labour and Tories are even. Are they factoring in an assumption that they will drift in the Tories favour up to polling day? It's all the more baffling since the odds regarding individual seats still implies Labour will be largest party, just. So would imagine these two predictions would be consistent.
